Hey, guys, sorry I haven't been on here so much, I'm just going through some rough times right now. You see, last week on February 4th, my grandmother died when my mom and sister went to visit her and Pappy at their house. I was at my brother-in-law and sister's place when it happened, and my dad came in to look after me while they were there. Mom told him he wasn't to say a single word about what all happened, but when they came home, they told me everything that happened. Pappy told them she was feeling drained after the night before, and she wasn't feeling too well. They called the hospital to take her in for an examination, but no matter how long the medics argued with her, she just wouldn't go with them. They kept asking her about her health, but she wouldn't answer. And what happened after up to thirty minutes, no one knows for sure. Perhaps her heart gave out, or maybe she suffered a heart attack. Or maybe she had a stroke. Anyhow, when she felt she started giving out, she finally agreed to go with the medics. When my cousins and my aunts and uncles heard the news, they bolted straight to the hospital, following the ambulance the whole way. On the way to there, the medics did all they could to keep her heart going. My mom, sister, and Pappy kept calling to her, never giving up on her to come back to us. Then when they finally got to the E.R., they finally brought her back for a short period of time. She couldn't speak, and yet they could all tell she was giving off a sign of love. Then, after one good look at all the loved ones she was surrounded by, she died in hospital bed.
When my mom and sister finally came home, they told me everything that happened. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, myself, but when they told me everything was true, I didn't know what to feel. I deeply apologized to Mom and my sister for not being there, but they said that I wouldn't have been able to handle it. And after a while, we all started to cry. Losing one grandmother in my family was bad enough, but having to lose both?! And on both sides of the family?! I don't know how I'll be able to live on from all of this!
They had her body cremated, and we all scheduled her funeral for tomorrow at noon. I'll be there to recite a quote from the bible along with my younger cousin, Dillon Ross. There's going to be a lot of people speaking in Geemaw's honor, and some of her favorite songs will be played, too.
Rest in Peace, Jane "Geemaw" A. Bender; may you live on in all of us for as long as we live. Amen. T_T
